——– Thoughts that come to mind in life

Lessons from The Adventure of Tintin

Good movie always delivers such great messages. Some of my friends used to think that animated movie is only for kids and has no value to watch. Buy, hey… for most animated movie I’ve watched, I always felt it worth it.

Today, I’ve just watched a good movie: The Adventures of TinTin: Secret of The Unicorn. It poured life lessons to me: about strong will and struggle.

My 3 most favorite statements of it:

1. “Many people said the grass was always greener on the others’ yard, and they often forgot to green their own grass.”

2. “If you run into a wall, don’t turn back, but push through it.”
This is how Tintin could always find the answer in his adventures. Stopping and turning back will never bring us to our goal.

And it just reminded me of a quote of Michael Jordan: “If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”

3. “Many people are waiting to tell you that you’ve failed; but never tell yourself so.”
When we give up, our journey to wherever-we-are-heading-to will definitely stop there.

Flower seed will grow beautiful if it is well watered and can survive from strong wind, blazing hot sunshine and heavy rain. So as human, we will achieve our goal if we have strong will to stand and to struggle for it.
